Hydrant Flushing

The Village of Arena will be flushing and testing Fire Hydrants during May 24th-26th. Residents may experience some discoloration of their water.
However, the water will continue to be safe to drink. Residents may want to avoid doing laundry during this time to avoid discoloration of clothing. If you must do laundry, make sure you check the water before you wash the clothes.
Despite the inconvenience of the discolored water, it is necessary to flush fire hydrants to remove any sediment that might have settled in the water mains and also, to insure that the fire hydrants remain in good working condition.
If you have any questions, please call the Arena Public Works at 459-5838. Thank you for your understanding during this process.

Well Drilling

What is going on in the Village of Arena Park? Sam’s Well Drilling, Inc. from Randolph, WI is drilling the test well for the planned construction of the Village of Arena secondary well to be completed in late 2022 with the well house construction to be completed in 2023. A secondary well has been recommended by DNR for several years to maintain water security in the event of an equipment failure of our only well. Additionally, a second well aids in having adequate water supply in a fire event, and thirdly, an additional well sets our community up for future economic growth. Funding for this project is coming from Arena’s TIF District, which keeps Village taxpayer money in the Village. Photo courtesy of Kathy Stoltz Photography.

Background Authorization Form

DOG LICENSE(S) for 2022 are here!

Please remember that if you have a dog that is over 5 months of age, by state law and village ordinance, it must be licensed each year. This helps ensure that the dog is properly vaccinated. As an added bonus, if our officers come upon a properly licensed dog (meaning the license is current and is attached to the collar), we will try to get the dog home, at least a couple of times, rather than taking it to Human Society “doggy jail” and resulting in the owner of having to pay "bond" to get the dog out. Licenses can be obtained at the Village Clerk's Office – COST: $7.00 neutered/spayed; $15.00 unaltered. Please take steps to get your dog licensed as we do check when we have contact for a dog related matter (and only one warning will be given for the license issue). Thank-you.
